Attractions you shouldn’t miss in the Temple of Heaven:


Altar of Prayer for Good Harvests


It is for praying for good harvest in the first lunar month. It is 38.2 meters (125.3 feet) high and has a diameter of 24.2 meters (79.4 feet).

Echo Wall


The Echo Wall is the circular wall of Imperial Vault of Heaven. It has the effect of echo. If two persons stand respectively under the east wall and the west wall and speak softly toward the north, they can clearly hear the echo of their words.

Circular Mound Altar


The emperors worshipped the Heaven there on the winter solstice every year. The number of stone steps, stone slabs and stones of each tier are all in multiples of nine, which emphasizes the supremacy of the Heaven as nine is considered a positive number showing emperors’ dignity. There is the Heaven Heart Stone at the center of top tier. When people stand on the stone and speak, the voice sounds extremely sonorous.
Echo Wall
Heaven Heart Stone

Danbi Bridge


It is the oldest overpass in Beijing, higher in the north and lower in the south. There are 3 lanes on the bridge respectively for the emperors, the Emperor of Heaven and the ministers from east to west in ancient time.
